Different than what I expected
When I saw the previews for the movie I thought it looked interesting so I went and read the book (which I loved by the way!) and I went to see this at midnight on thursday. needless to say I was the oldest person in the theater.
Let's start with what I liked:
- dialogue was similar if not exactly what was said in the book - all of the Cullens acted just like they were in the book especially Alice. - I liked the feel/mood of the movie and the cinematography - Robert Pattinson is just unbelievably handsome and I had a hard time concentrating on what was going on anytime he was on screen - I really enjoyed Bella and Charlie's scenes the best because it felt really natural - the baseball scene was my favorite and pretty accurate - I did like the end where they show victoria at prom plotting her revenge leaving room open for a sequel - I loved when Bella meets the Cullens and Jasper's face the whole time - I also like Billy Black in the movie (great casting) - Jacob and Bella's scenes were very good as well, but I felt they had more of a connection than Bella and Edward :(
Now what I didn't like: - too choppy and not enough character development for anyone, it was way too rushed. - wasn't very fluid it seemed like they were showing us the story not telling us one - I don't remember Bella's friends being such losers...I would have not hung out with any of these kids in high school - I could see Robert Pattinson's contact line in like every close up shot...it got annoying - the ballet hall scene was the most anti-climactic climax I've ever seen, it just seemed very forced and ended in like a 1:30. and why did he bite her on the forearm and not her hand? - they needed to include more bella and edward getting to know each other...it was like one minute they meet, the next they are in love with each other - the running/climbing was super cheesy - Bella's hospital scene was awful acting on her part, I think I laughed out loud. the same with Edward when he 1st smells her in biology...I thought he wanted to kill her not throw up all over himself. - I don't recall Rosalie being so terribly important in the book, but she is probably the Cullen with the most screen time save for Edward. Catherine Hardwick must really love Nikki Reed.
all in all, I liked the book and the movie. I was distracted by the things I didn't like so much that I wasn't really enjoying the movie to it's fullest capacity, I'll have to go see it again to fully appreciate it. If I hadn't read the book before I think I would have been totally lost, and I'm thankful I did if it weren't for me pointing out everything that was wrong with the movie
Chappelle's Show (2003)
one of the funniest shows out there.
How can anyone diss "Chapelle's Show"? For everyone who says it is racist and played out is lying to themselves. Who cares if it shows white people in a negative light? It's about time that there are shows out there that portray white people in something other than a positive light. Plus if you want to see white people doing "good" than watch NBC or CBS. As for the jokes being the same...who cares, they work...every time. If you have an open mind and are up for 30 minutes of mindless humor, watch the show and be prepared to laugh your ass off. As for the person who suggested that chapelle's show should be on BET, get over yourself.
